Professional Development Guides
The National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning developed professional development guides for four content areas of the toolkit: literacy, math, technology, and the arts.

Program directors, site coordinators, and others who might lead afterschool staff development can use these guides to facilitate professional development sessions for afterschool instructors.
Used with the online Afterschool Training Toolkit, these four guides give program directors and site coordinators the resources they need to lead professional development activities that will teach afterschool staff how to build fun, innovative, and academically enriching activities that engage students, extend their knowledge in new ways, and support academic achievement.
How It Works
Using these guides, site coordinators and program directors can lead professional development sessions in which staff
- learn about promising practices for academic enrichment,
- participate in professional development activities,
- discuss vignettes illustrating promising practices in afterschool programs, and
- watch video clips of high-quality afterschool academic enrichment.
